Soul Sunday: An anxious heart does indeed weigh a man down

daily peace

Are you worried? Be honest. I know I am.  And I’m not alone from the looks of things.  In conversation with friends and co-workers from time to time I’ve realised that worrying is more the normal way of life than the exception for many of us. Continue reading

Fun Friday: English is not always English!

Did you know that ‘o-u-g-h’ can be pronounced nine different ways? Or that the past tense of “dare” is “durst”? What about the fact that the proper name for an ice-cream headache is “Sphenopalatine ganglionneuralgia”?

Well, you’re not alone; neither did I! So here are 50 Facts You Didn’t Know About The English Language :-)


WordPress Photo Challenge: Motion II

The Challenge: “This week, share your photographs that have captured motion, and tell us the stories behind the images.”

One afternoon we visited a park where you are allowed to feed the ducks. They spent just as much time diving under the water as they did swimming on the surface.

Here is the link to my first ‘motion‘ post and don’t forget you can enjoy even more motion photos here.

Never ever ever lie to your mom … like … never

I could never lie right. Something on my face would let my mom know that the words coming from my mouth were not true. Besides, I had a weak memory and I soon learnt it was better to tell the truth and take my punishment instead of adding a second lie to the first one because I couldn’t keep the ‘facts’ straight.

As a mom now, I’ve tried to teach my son it’s always better to tell the truth because if and when I find out he’s telling me lies … well, let’s just say it’s not pretty.  Oh the stories! Being a parent is not easy and the things your children may tell you under pressure are absolutely mind-boggling.

Maybe that’s why I loved this video. I think the mom was awesome in the way she handled this situation (a bit radical, but still awesome). I gave her 5 stars for bravery, creativity and succeeding in making her point aka unforgettable :-)
